Black Widow and Hawkeye get together in Avengers 2?

After eagled-eyed viewers spotted the Black Widow's rather sweet tribute to Hawkeye in 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier', we may finally see them get a bit closer…

That's right folks - it looks as though Marvel's love-struck S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, Black Widow and Hawkeye, might finally go public with their relationship… after a rather cute Easter Egg in 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' hints at their relationship. But will we see more of this in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'? Directors Anthony and Joe Russo certainly seem to think so.

During an interview with the Empire Film Podcast, directing brothers Anthony and Joe Russo confirmed that Black Widow's arrow necklace (as worn throughout 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier') is a reference to Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye… and it's there for good reason.

"Honestly it was a choice that Scarlett made as a character," they said. "And… her relationship with Hawkeye will become very clear in Avengers 2."

Obviously, this shows a very deep connection between Black Widow and Hawkeye… and it seems this is going to be explored further in the 'Avengers' sequel. But does this mean that the two S.H.I.E.L.D. agents are in a relationship? Surely it's not official until it's on Facebook…

"I think that may have been my little nod to Mr. Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye," said Scarlett Johansson in an interview with Rotten Tomatoes. "I guess you could interpret it in different ways but we thought it would be nice to have something that was a little bit personal for the Widow. You kind of forget, because she's such a badass, you kind of forget that she's still a woman and that she has her interpersonal relationships in life outside of work."

Of course, it looks as though we'll have to wait until 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' to find out more. But it's been clear since 'Avengers Assemble' that there's more than meets the eye when it comes to Black Widow and Hawkeye's relationship.

Whether or not they go public is another matter entirely. But her necklace certainly hints that it's more than just friendship…
